This article provides information on how to care for Silkworms.

Silkworm Care

When first placed, a Silkworm has a small size and appears to move swiftly. After 48 hours, the Silkworm would have grown to its full size and will produce 1-10 Silk Threads when harvested. Silkworms produce Silk Threads every 24 hours starting from two days old. Silkworms need to be constantly fed with food and water every day. A Silkworm may become sick if it is not properly fed. To cure a sick Silkworm, one can use the Antidote on it.

At around 15 days of age, the Silkworm will reach an elderly stage and will have wrinkles. It will also begin to move slower than usual. A Silkworm may die of old age after living for approximately 20 days, or being left sick for too long. A Silkworm Soul may be used to revive it.

Silkworm Color

The color of a Silkworm depends on the food it is fed and will produce a Silk Thread depending on its color. By default, a Silkworm will produce Silk Thread - Grey, however, by feeding it, the color will slightly change to the color of the consumable that was fed to it. For example, feeding a Blueberry will make the Silkworm slightly more blue. However, it will not be completely blue unless it is fed more.
